The good, bad, and sloppy drunk of E3 2017

The Electronic Entertainment Expo was last week and our team has had some time to go home, decompress, and sober up. Steven Hansen and Brett Makedonski regale us with tales of crowded E3 show floors, a dog pooping, a secret speakeasy, and h...

Hey everybody, We're rolling along, matching colors and fighting gravity in this week's episode of Retroid. Tonight's topic will be puzzle games, stuff like Tetris, Columns, Puyo Puyo, Dr. Mario, Bejeweled, basically anything where blo...

Retroid's Episode 2 faces off against the Collector

Hey everybody, After the great response to Retroid's first episode, we were eager to record another one for you. Unfortunately, I made a mistake during recording that made it take a lot longer to edit this show than the first one. Bear with...

What the big three have to do to 'win' E3

Look, the whole "who won E3" thing is arbitrary and stupid, but somehow the Podtoid boys took that question and came up with some relatively smart things to say about it anyway. That was just one of the questions that came up on this pre-E3...

Retroid tackles collecting tonight

Many thanks to everyone who's listened to Retroid's first episode. The reception seems to be mostly positive, and I'm glad that people are enjoying it. We want to keep things rolling along, and we're recording our second episode tonigh...

Now is a good time to chime in about Rime

There really isn't much to talk about in the video game world right now, because everybody is being so hush-hush in the lead up to E3. One of the games we talked about is Rime, which might be good or it might not. Brett doesn't know. (...

Have you done anything cool in Battlegrounds?

Steven has been playing it a bit, and he has found his best success in Battlegrounds while just driving a motorcycle off some jumps. At least, until he jumped into a bombing area. That's just one of the many things discussed on this episode...

Introducing Retroid

I've been working on a project for the last month or so, and I think we're just about ready to get started with it. Old-timers might remember that Destructoid once had a retro gaming podcast called RetroForce GO! I think it'd be f...

Raise your hand if you don't know what Mr. Whippy is

Last episode we talked with Alex Rose about British slang (and his video game, I guess), and we're not letting up this week with a new term we learned from Destructoid alumnus Fraser Brown. What the heck is Mr. Whippy and why don't American...

Super Rude Bear's Alex Rose chats with the Podtoid boys

On this episode of Podtoid, independent game developer Alex Rose talks about his recently released Super Rude Bear Resurrection, game development in general, and why it's okay for British people to call their friends "cunts." The crew spent...

Cynics will call them walking simulators

In this episode of Podtoid, Brett talked about two walking simulators, What Remains of Edith Finch and Scanner Sombre. Steven just wanted to talk about the Silicon Valley failure Juicero. I made a machinima condolence vi...

The limits of nostalgia: Podtoid reviews Yooka-Laylee

What happens when you go back to the well and try to make a clone of a 20 year old game? Well, not exactly good things. But, maybe, still what crowdfunding supporters were after? You'll have to listen to the latest Podtoid special to see wh...

How are you liking Persona 5 so far?

It seems like people are really digging Persona 5, or at least people not named Brett Makedonski. At least, that's what I gather from listening to this latest episode of Podtoid. Steven and Ray are into it. Whatever floats their boats, I gu...

Are you buying the new Xbox One?

This is Podtoid 365, which means if you had the entire back catalog, you could listen to one episode every day for an entire year. We didn't do anything special for that, but that won't stop me from pointing out the next arbitrary milestone...

Brett chose to save Space Hitler

Brett had the choice to save Space Hitler or to liberate sci-fi Auschwitz. He went with the former. In his defense, he only had a few seconds to make the decision, so you can understand why it might have been tough. That's one of the topics...

A recap from GDC and PAX East

Ooh, this episode is a little late. See, I was on vacation, and the ol' crew decided to up and record an episode without even telling me. You know what that means? No Hot Dish! Even so, it's worth listening to, probably. I listened to parts...

Yogscast and Humble Bundle team up for an awesome cause

Yogscast is fairly popular, even if I couldn't name a single thing they've done. For a few years now, they've been hosting a "Jingle Jam" event to raise money for charities during the holiday season. It was only natural that Humble Bundle w...

Battleborn deserves to be game of the year

It's the last episode of 2016, so of course we looked back on the year and talked about our favorite games. The three-man Podtoid crew has some differing opinions, but we eventually came to the consensus that Battleborn is our game of the y...

Predictions for The Game Awards

The Game Awards are tonight, so last night the usual crew got together to make some predictions on it. Will Uncharted 4 sweep the show? Will Pokémon Go actually win something despite that it's a piece of garbage? Is Dark Souls III a ...

Initial thoughts on Nintendo Switch

I love it when things slide into place and then click to fasten. Holy cow, that click on the Nintendo Switch. It's so gratifying. I will probably slide the Switch's Joy-Cons in and out, in and out, savoring each delicious snap. And I'm not ...

Gears of War 4, Dishonored 2, and Hamilton (for some reason)

Look, I didn't want this episode to be about the smash hit Broadway musical Hamilton. I thought it would be a fun thing to briefly mention it as a show with good lyrics and an interesting premise. You can probably guess which of the core Po...

Thoughts on ReCore, Forza Horizon 3, and butt cancer

We took a week off to gather our chakras and set our crystals in neat rows, but the Podtoid crew is back. Actually, this episode was up on the Internet as early as Tuesday evening, but malevolent feng shui kept us from putting up a post not...

Let's talk all about PAX West 'cause it was a hell of a time

At PAX West this year, I made it a point to say "Beer for My Horses" as often as I could. I wasn't sure what the context was. I guess it's like how they say "Roll Tide" in the south. "You ready for that exam tomorrow?" "Roll Tide." "Johnny,...

When I was a kid, this song used to scare the shit out of Im not sure if it was because it plays when you get sucked inside a giant head, or maybe the chord progression, but it made me unable to play the game until I got older :P
